Acting on the belief that music education is vital to childhood development, Musical Masterworks obtained private foundation support to bring music to under-served areas of New London and Middlesex County at no cost to them. Musical Masterworks’ community involvement program commenced during the 1997-1998 season.
In the past sixteen years, Musical Masterworks has presented over 100 classical and chamber music concerts to more than 15,000 students in more than twenty schools, located in New London, Waterford, Old Lyme, Lyme, Old Saybrook, Deep River, Essex, Norwich, and Montville. Artists who have appeared include the Imani Winds, the New England Percussion Ensemble, the Amelia Piano Trio, the Marian Anderson String Quartet, the Chiara String Quartet,the Ritz Chamber Players, the Harlem String Quartet and others.
This season, we are bringing the acclaimed Asylum Quartet, a saxophone ensemble, to perform for children in seven schools in New London County. The quartet will present 13 in-school concert assemblies, and lead approximately ten masterclasses.

Here are a few photographs from their performances at the ISAAC School iand at the B.P. Learned Center in New London, on Sept. 30, 2014.
